T-Mobile Chief Technology Officer Neville Ray said, "We know how critical it is to stay connected with the people you care about — especially in an emergency. Day in and day out, this team works incredibly hard to deliver the best possible network experience to our customers. And, when the weather turns nasty, we go into overdrive to keep our network running and keep you connected when you need it most."

The telecom service provider said that In advance of any hurricane forecast to make landfall in the United States, it sets up an engineering command center near the expected area of impact and could deploy response teams to ensure interruptions to service that are kept at a minimum.

Additionally, the company's Geo-Redundant Network Operation Centers (NOCs) closely manage network traffic and further coordinate any response to an event like the aftermath of a hurricane.

At time of writing, T-Mobile was down 0.38 percent.
